Kathmandu, June 21

Teachers Service Commission has fixed the dates for holding temporary teachers’ examination for permanent status.

While the exam for pre-primary level temporary teachers will be held on June 13, secondary level teachers will have sit for the test on July 14. The examination has been postponed four times earlier.

Although a total of 23,286 temporary teachers across the country have applied for the exam, only 22,076 will be given permanent status.

Temporary teachers who joined service between January 4, 1993 and September 9, 2015 will be taking the examination.

The examination for permanent status of temporary teachers was postponed for the fourth time on March 27 following a direct order from Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli. Teachers Service Commission Chief Tana Gautam said they were confident about holding the examination peacefully.

Aspiring teachers who had acquired teaching licence from the government had opposed the government’s decision to hold internal examination for permanent posts of teachers.

The ninth amendment to the Education Act has paved the way for temporary teachers to take internal examination for permanent status. There are around 700,000 teaching licence holders in the country.
